TOKYO ORIGAMI is a set of exclusive, playful and alluring porcelain tableware. Created by the famous designer and entrepreneur Simen Staalnacke, this work really stands out from the crowd with its beautiful origami pattern and unique combination of influences, bringing together Japanese aesthetics, the love hormone oxytocin and Simen’s favourite city, Tokyo.
The tableware is embellished by a graphic expression built around a simple origami figure that is assembled in many different ways. This creates an exceptional dynamism in the design that makes the different parts shine together, but also individually, moving effortlessly from the simple to the more extravagant and complex. The repetition of blue tones throughout the pattern are a tribute to Magnor's legacy and historical use of blue colours.
Another theme is the love hormone oxytocin, which is associated with being social and enjoying the company of friends and family. It generates feelings of satisfaction, peace and security, which is why Simen chose to adorn this beautiful porcelain tableware with the eye-catching pattern of oxytocin’s molecular structure - to inspire a pleasant atmosphere and friendly conversations around the table!
In addition to fostering a sense of love and well-being, Simen Staalnacke designed this tableware to stand out on the table, enhancing a party atmosphere while still being stylish and elegant. By combining the origami pattern in different ways, he plays with beautiful decorations and sophisticated blue tones, specially chosen to draw the eye and enhance the dining experience.
